You know, I'm just glad they're here, staying in the game. The ice cream is great; our big family has been there a bunch of times. Never eaten their regular food. Service is maybe a little slow, yeah, and it's young girls doing the work, but with the exception of one young lady who was just flat terrible, inattentive, busy... More

The ice cream is good and always has been. The ownership has changed a few times lately. The old time décor has been removed. Don't order food, this a is an ice cream place.

Pretty much your average old fashioned dairy but a little out-dated. The old fashioned part of town deserves a little better. Ice-cream is great and the malts are amazing. Nuts are all in house. They just need a new paint job and some better seating.

This is a well known Watertown Icon. The portions are not large, and it is a bit expensive for what you get. However, if you are looking for some nostalgia, it's a good place to go!

A friend and I went here one day while we were touring the town. We each enjoyed a delicious ice cream cone while we were out walking around. It is nice to be able to get a fresh creamery type ice cream treat.

We used to stop for wonderful old time malts & bought their homemade ice cream in large containers for our parties. They no longer make their own ice cream & the last malts that we bought there were not the same & somewhat pricey. Now we go to Culvers. Much better quality control.

Great stop for ice cream treats, and the food is not bad either. Sit at the counter, and watch all the action. Reminds me of the soda fountains of years gone by. FYI, bathrooms are down the stairs.
